I just built a new computer in past several weeks. I have 2 HDD - 1 is my Windows drive and 1 is my media drive from older build. Both HDD are a few years old. I have tried to recover my media HDD and it will not recover until the drive is formatted. I try to format in Windows and it gets to the end and then errors - "Format was not compelted succesfull" or something similar. I tried using Recuva as the program. I am stuck at formatting the drive to use Recuva to get my music, pictures, and movies.
